Backlash? The resurgence of homophobia in contemporary cities
An interdisciplinary UCL Urban Laboratory workshop aimed at postgraduate urban researchers, academics and practitioners.
Date: Thursday 11th February 2010
Venue: 10am-5:30pm, UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, Wates House, Room G02.
Recent attacks in London and other cities have brought homophobia to the surface of urban life, alongside other forms of hate crime and lines of social and cultural division. Across a range of urban disciplines - including geography, architecture, art and crime science - this UCL Urban Laboratory workshop will contextualise media reports of a resurgence of homophobia in the UK in relation to broader debates over citizenship, sexuality and urban space in London and internationally.
This event forms part of a series organised at UCL for LGBT History Month 2010.
Backlash is supported by the UCL Grand Challenge of Intercultural Interaction | UCL LGBT Staff Network | UCL Bartlett School of Architecture.
Speakers and session chairs include:
Johan Andersson (University of Leeds);
Oreet Ashery (artist and AHRC Fellow);
Gavin Brown (University of Leicester);
